It was so warm and BRIGHT when we were taking these photos! We took a little venture away from Fanime to the nearby rose garden to get these photos.

Nanami construction notes:

The base wig is from Color.Salon on Ebay. This is the first lace front wig I have worn! I love it to death, because it's thick, has a natural color blend, and fits snugly enough that I don't need to glue anything down. I cut wefts from an old wig for the braid and hand sewed it in place.

I found the perfect yellow stretch twill online, and the black stretch twill from Hobby Lobby. The black bias tape is the regular Wrights stuff, but I made the yellow. The top is based of McCall's 6035. I changed the collar, gave it really snug sleeves, and a separating zipper down the front. The triangles on the collar are actually machine embroidered. I also made my first welt pocket! Oh, what fun that was. I made the shorts as tight as possible to mimic the artwork, and they close with an invisible zipper.

Whether they are are tights or leggings, they are very opaque, so I chose to layer two pairs of black tights. The shoes are from when I did the school uniform version, but I added new black bows. (I painted a pair of boots with yellow fabric paint and glued/sewed the white vinyl on top). The epaulettes are craft foam and a fringe. I chose to go with a darker color as the hot pink doesn't work well with the bright yellow. The cord is parachute cord, and the tip is plastic.

My boyfriend (Talon Forge) is a metalsmith, and made the ring out of silver and powder coated the pink color on the rose design.

I always disliked Tsuwabuki because he kept trying to hurt Nanami! Not intentionally of course but still. He makes a really good Mitsuru though :)
